Acclaimed as the greatest German novel written since the end of World War II, The Tin Drum is the autobiography of thirty-year-old Oskar Matzerath who has lived through the long Nazi nightmare and who, as the novel begins, is being held in a mental institution. Willfully stunting his growth at three feet for many years, wielding his tin drum and piercing scream as anarchistic weapons, he provides a profound yet hilarious perspective on both German history and the human condition in the modern world

An introduction to metaphysics by Martin Heidegger( Book )

20 editions published between 1959 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 1,744 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Introduction to Metaphysics includes a reinterpretation of Greek thought, a vision of Western history, and a glimpse of the reasons behind Heidegger's support of the Nazi Party in the 1930s. Heidegger tries to reawaken the "question of Being" by challenging some of the most enduring prejudices embedded in Western philosophy and in our everyday practices and langauge. Furthermore, be relates this question to the insights of Greek tragedy into the human condition and to the political and cultural crises of modernity." "This new translation makes this work more accessible than ever before. It combines smoothness with accuracy and provides conventional translations of Greek passages that Heidegger translated unconventionally. There are also extensive notes, a German-English glossary, and an introduction that discusses the history of the text, its basic themes, and its place in Heidegger's oeuvre."--Jacket
Cat and mouse by Gnter Grass( Book )

27 editions published between 1961 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 1,587 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On the publication of his first novel, The Tin Drum, Günter Grass was acclaimed internationally as the most imaginative and powerful novelist to come out of postwar Germany. Cat and Mouse has the same setting that The Tin Drum made famous: Danzig and its petty bourgeoisie. But the art form is deliberately different. Brief and compact, it focuses on the extraordinary fate and person of one hero, Joachim Mahlke, fourteen years old when the story starts. Mahlke is set apart from his fellows by an unusual excrescence of cartilage, a huge Adam's apple, sign and symbol of precocious virility, at once embarrassing and stimulating to its bearer. When a classmate sics a cat on Mahlke's "mouse," he unwittingly launches him on a hero's career. In order to compensate for his mouse, Mahlke turns himself into an athlete and ace diver who brings up from a half-submerged ship all kinds of hardware to string around his neck. He becomes "The Great Mahlke," first to his classmates and later to the nation. Mahlke's mentors, however, refuse to be impressed. For the cat watching him, ready to pounce, is a society of petty men. Not even by gaining his country's highest honor, the Order of Merit, the most dazzling piece of hardware to cover his protuberance, does Mahlke succeed in conciliating his enemies. Mahlke is different, Mahlke is doomed. With ferocious virtuosity, Gunter Grass maps the local and mental circumstances of Mahlke's dramatic and pathetic struggle, compelling the reader's participation and belief."--Book jacket

The threepenny opera by Bertolt Brecht( Book )

39 editions published between 1976 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Brutal, scandalous, perverted, yet humorous, hummable, and with a happy ending- Bertolt Brecht's revolutionary masterpiece The Threepenny Opera is a landmark of modern drama that has become embedded in the Western cultural imagination. Through the love story of Polly Peachum and "Mack the Knife" Macheath, the play satirizes the bourgeois of the Weimar Republic, revealing a society at the height of decadence and on the verge of chaos. Complemented with music by Kurt Weill, it was one of the earliest and most successful attempts to introduce jazz into the theater, and the song "Mack the Knife" became one of the most popular and widely recorded songs of the twentieth century."--Book cover
